Our Revolution Harris County informs us that the guest speaker at this Saturday's monthly meeting will be none other than Sema Hernandez, proudly socialist Democratic candidate for US Senate in 2018. She is starting the process toward challenging John Cornyn for his seat in 2020, and she embodies the maxim that democracy does stop at voting.
Sema is a daughter of immigrants, oldest of 7 siblings and first American born child in her family. She grew up in a migrant working family and she understands the struggles of people who are burdened by crushing debt, job insecurity, and lack of healthcare coverage, among the other struggles of the working poor. Sema is a passionate Human Rights advocate, activist and organizer who made a historic run for U.S. Senate in the 2018 primary election.
WHERE: Havens Center, 1827 W. Alabama St., 77006 (just east of The Chocolate Bar)
